The EMIS performance management system is illustrated as a continuous cycle of communication, organized performance, continuous improvement and integration around a core that has Energy Account Centres (EACs) at its centre surrounded by the following consecutive layers: Metering & Inputs, Data Capture & Integration, Data Analysis and Reporting, and Management Systems: People and Procedures.
The development of a functioning EMIS system is illustrated in three phases. Phase 1 is the EMIS Audit to assess, identify gaps and make recommendations on the following separate elements: Energy Account Centres, Metering and Inputs, Data Capture and System Integration, Data Analysis and Reporting, Management Systems: People and Procedures. Phase 2 is to develop an EMIS Implementation Plan using an EMIS Audit Report, Conceptual Design and Detailed Design. Phase 3 is the EMIS Implementation with the aim of continuous energy performance improvement by unifying the elements identified in Phase 1.
